Hi, My wife a non-eu has been issued with her permenant residence card however her employer are now requesting right to work proof between a date between the date of the COA and the date on the perm residence card (specifically 07/03/18 and 16/05/18).

Just out of curiosity, what does the RC look like in UK? In Ireland, you are given a stamp in your passport, along with a GNIB Card, which states your entitlement and is valid for 5 years. I just read, after requesting a return of documents, that if the UKBA do not have your passport when they make ...

This section seems to relate to working in the UK though. It also asks for an employers declaration in the form of a signature and possible company stamp.

I have to get this completed by my former employer?
